About Maritime Film

Maritime Film is one of four companies owned and directed by Ian Biles (Maritime Services Group). We provide Marine Coordination services to the Film, Television and Media Industries. 

With 46 years of experience at sea on all sorts of marine craft, from small sailing dinghies to large supertankers, superyachts, hovercraft, canoes or jet skis, Ian is one of the most qualified and experienced mariners there is. 

His experience in nearly every type of marine environment provides him with an understanding of the challenges faced when turning an idea into a practical reality in the challenging environment that is the sea. 

Whether you need marine consultants for script analysis, personnel or vessel acquisition, budget generation, location scouting or marine logistics, we provide pre-production, production and post-production assistance and guidance.   

If you need it to float in, on or under the water, we can sort it out.
